Five8

FIVE EIGHT is a multidisciplinary artist, born and based in Montreal, Quebec. A fine-art painter since 2002, he favours a bold aesthetic over political commentary. His figurative murals and paintings feature dynamic compositions and vivid contrasting colours.

Having produced a series of neon-inspired paintings and murals, in 2014 he was inspired to produce real neon pieces.

While his painting work affects his approach to design with neon, his experience with neon affects the use of colour and light in his paintings. There is a communication between the two mediums taking place with each consequent work.

FIVE has exhibited work in Montreal, Toronto, New York, Miami, and Tel Aviv. He strives to take on larger and more challenging projects and is currently in the research and planning phase for a series of mixed media sculptural installations.
